God help us both, and may you forgive me. To Graham Greene, with apologies. Bordeaux 2d July 1951. Robert Escarpit'. Wrappers lightly dust-soiled, else a very nice copy. An English primer utilising extracts from Greene's novel, with numerous notes, and examination questions of various kinds: 'How does Greene explain the lieutenant's political attitude? Does the explanation seem satisfactory to you? 'Why does an animal never know despair?'.
